by Shay Sokol
In the wake of yesterday’s early morning Mid-City traffic stop gone terribly wrong – where one suspect was killed by police, two officers were shot multiple times, and another suspect was shot in the leg – police released more details today about the incident. At an afternoon press conference, NOPD Chief Ronal Serpas said Officer Jason Giroir pulled over brothers Earl Sipp and Justin Sipp at around 5:30am yesterday in Mid-City for a broken light over the license plate, and possibly other moving traffic violations, including running a stop sign.
FBI Goes Inside NOPD
FBI agents used to have to conduct a raid to get into NOPD offices. But, one chief, two years and three trials later, the Bureau is getting welcomed with arms wide open. As of today, two FBI agents will be stationed in the police department's Public Integrity Bureau, which is the arm responsible for internal investigations. The Bureau agents will help NOPD root out corruption and investigate civil rights violations. They will also train officers how to avoid those civil rights violations. FBI agents were previously stationed in New Orleans, but did not return after K.
